Rosemary Rutherford was a prolific artist; she captured the human condition and the beauty of nature across her work. She was exceptionally talented, from drawing to painting to etching and stained glass making.

She painted and sketched everything she witnessed and her work combines intense religious belief with emotion and vibrant colour.

‘Rosemary Rutherford: life and works of an extraordinary artist’ No. 5 in our People & Stone series, reveals the spirit of Rosemary’s artistic life and achievements.
